Ndzevane Irrigation Scheme

Project Description

A tripartite agreement, signed in 1980 between the Government of Swaziland, the United Nations High Commission for Refugees and the Lutheran World Federation, established the Ndzevane Refugee Settlement in south-eastern Swaziland for members of the Mngomezulu and Matsengwa tribes who were displaced from South Africa. An area of approximately 6 000 ha was made available for the refugees who numbered about 5 400 people, comprising about 800 families.
